There are a lot of ugly bikes out there. Sport bikes are ugly to me but not to others.

I was riding with my right heel on the peg with my toes out which is the opposite of what you want. I have relatively short legs (29-30 inseam) and it was way, way too tight. Every review I've seen said the same thing.

Other than that I really liked it. With rearsets and a taller seat it'd be real fun on backroads. Not really fast, but fun.
What he said.

I test rode one and in the right package, it could be good; but it isn’t in the right package
